I enlarged this saying...and it is still on my 3yr old sons, dresser...It has been there since he was born..I love this saying!..As the mother of a special needs baby, It brought me great strength and peace...I hope it does the same for all of you: The child, yet unborn, spoke with the Father. "Lord, How will I survive in the world? I will not be like other children. My walk may be slower, my speech hard to understand. I may look different. What is to become of me?" The Lord replied to the child, "My precious one, have no fear. I will give you exceptional parents. They will love you because you are special, not in spite of it. Though your path through life will be difficult, your reward will be greater. You have been blessed with a special ability to love, and those whose lives you touch will be blessed....because you are special."
